Postdoctoral Associate Affiliation: NYU Abu Dhabi
Education: PhD, Chiba University, Japan; MA, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China; BA, Shenyang Agriculture University
Research Areas: Bioinformaitcs; Epigenetics; Genomics
Chi Zhang received PhD degree in Genetics from Chiba University, Japan, where he started to work on sequencing and be interested in omics data analysis. After graduation from Japan, Chi joined Dr. Ressom’s lab in Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, Georgetown University in 2013, to develop computational skills on Bioinformatics and System Biology.
Then he joined Dr. Sadler’s lab at Mount Sinai, New York since 2015, started to study epigenomics and genomics of liver regeneration and liver diseases. Now, Chi is a research scientist in Dr. Sadler's lab, mainly working on RNA-seq, Bisulfite-seq and Chip-seq data analysis and integration.
Chi’s research interests are focused on deciphering the epigenome function during liver regeneration and understanding liver diseases induced by methylome changes. Also, he is also interested on multi-omics data integration and gene expression feature clustering in liver with machine learning methods.
